The Faith Community Eco-Justice Small Grants application process is open for faith leaders of faith institutions or faith community projects in Southern Africa.  


Faith leaders are invited to apply for a grant of up to R10,000 in South Africa. An additional amount is available for farm tools procurement, see more below, and please inquire if interested. 


Elsewhere in Southern Africa, faith leaders are invited to apply for a grant of up to R25,000.


To qualify, applicants will be SAFCEI members, faith leaders, and community leaders of faith working on issues of eco-justice. Applicants should have already undergone at least one SAFCEI training. 


Practical ethical environmental activities such as food gardens on faith land; training on eco-audits for the betterment of a faith institution; and campaigns on local and national environmental issues such as plastic waste by faith communities are among the Earth-friendly projects we are keen to support. 


We are interested to hear from you what other activities you have identified in your community that could benefit from a small grant.


SAFCEI will prioritise projects involving women and youth and with our existing faith leader network.


You will find full details and a guide to the process in this document.
